Following on from his huge debut EP Part of the Picture, Aboriginal and African-American artist Sachém returns with The Bigger Picture!

Kicking off with a hybrid performance at Redlands Performing Arts Centre, anchored in music and spoken word poetry, the new work highlights Sachém’s award-winning contemporary sound, weaving in theatrical elements of dance, visual projection and film.

Since the release of his EP in 2021, the rapper, singer, and poet has travelled Australia and the world, developing this new body of work that explores and dissects the reasons, motivations and stories behind Part of the Picture. The Bigger Picture is the second chapter: a hard-hitting, self-empowered theatre show that celebrates First Nations lives and dives deep into stories of disconnection and reconnection.

Sachém grew up between Adelaide and Minjerribah (North Stradbroke Island), where his family have resided for generations, listening to the stories told by his grandmother, aunties, uncles, and parents. A frontline leader and a voice for the people, Sachém laces rhymes with personal stories, while touching on poignant social and cultural issues that have and continue to impact his life.

Sachém is supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland.
